Following the recent anniversary edition of Morrissey’s 1994 number one album Vauxhall and I and with a new album on the way from the Mozfather there’s more release news from his camp.On September 8th Parlophone will release Introducing Morrissey – a concert film not previously available on DVD.
‘After the acclaim and chart success of 1994’s Vauxhall and I, Morrissey took to the road in February 1995 – his first UK shows for over two years. Introducing Morrissey documents this historic tour, recorded over two nights at Sheffield’s City Hall and the Winter Gardens in Blackpool (February 7th and 8th respectively).
This hour-long concert, directed by James O’Brien, captures Morrissey and his band at the peak of their powers, performing to ever hysterical and devoted audiences in packed out venues. The set list features six songs from Vauxhall – including UK top 10 ‘The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get’, three from Your Arsenal, as well as non-album single ‘Boxers’ (and b-side ‘Have-A-Go Merchant’), the rare, perennial fan favourite ‘Jack The Ripper’, and an exquisite cover of Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini’s ‘Moonriver’.
Introducing Morrissey is a beautiful visual reminder of the transcendent experience of a Morrissey concert, captured for posterity and now finally available on DVD.
